How to find the best coverage for you
When comparing auto insurance policies, there are a number of factors to consider. While finding an affordable policy is a priority, it’s important not to choose a policy based on cost alone, as this could put you at risk of being underinsured.
Always check each policy’s level of cover to see what’s included as standard and what you may need to pay extra for. Experiment by running multiple quotes and choosing different add-ons to see how it affects the price to get the best deal.
Opting for a more expensive policy that offers everything you need will work better for your pocket in the long run if you need to make a claim.
Why it makes sense to compare products and suppliers
Auto insurers have traditionally offered their most competitive prices to new customers, while those who have remained loyal to their insurer year after year have generally paid a higher premium.
However, thanks to the introduction of new FCA rules in January 2022, motor (and home) insurance companies are now prohibited from quoting a higher price for existing customers on renewal compared to new customers.
Despite this, shopping around for your auto insurance every year is still the best way to ensure you get the right level of coverage at the best price.
Reading customer reviews on sites like Trustpilot can also help you see how existing policyholders rate their coverage and customer service. Defaqto also awards stars to car insurers, which can be a good indication of the service they provide.
